visual change on button push?


Go to solution Solved by Melba23,

Recommended Posts

I have a GUI setup to run a few different programs and updates.  It is working fine but since some of them take some time I might end up forgetting which of the buttons I have already pushed. 

I am looking for a way to indicate which buttons have been pushed.  Say maybe change the color, or check a box next to it or really anything that will be a visual reference. 

If anyone has a suggestion, example, or just can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

BartDog,

Use the $BS_PUSHLIKE style on a checkbox control- then it stays pushed until you push it again: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUICtrlCreateButton("Normal", 10, 10, 80, 30)
GUICtrlCreateCheckBox("PushLike", 10, 50, 80, 30, $BS_PUSHLIKE)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

How is that? :)

to change only the color you can do this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

Local $state = 0
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 100, 60)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 10, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($button, 0xFA020B)
GUICtrlSetColor($button, 0xFFFFFF)
GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $button
            If $state = 0 Then
                $state = 1
                GUICtrlSetBkColor($button, 0x2C02FA)
            Else
                $state = 0
                GUICtrlSetBkColor($button, 0xFA020B)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Setting the color of buttons is going to cause that button to be stuck as the default control, there's a bug in the AutoIt code when it comes to coloring buttons.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
